Beijing Steps Up Security Ahead of Parliament

Extra police have been deployed to maintain order during the annual session of the National People's Congress, starting Saturday, AFP reported. A parliamentary advisory body opens its own week-long meeting on Thursday.

At the so-called "two meetings", thousands of delegates place their rubber stamp of approval on the policies of the ruling Communist Party.

Nearly 180,000 police, firefighters, security personnel and traffic police will patrol Beijing during the sessions, while the city has recruited 560,000 citizen volunteers to monitor the capital's streets, the Beijing News said.

Checks at subway, bus and train stations have been stepped up, while vehicles coming from outside the city will be banned and the airspace over the capital restricted, the China Daily said.
